Want to be as strong as someone 50 pounds heavier than you and as fast, agile, and as quick as someone 50 pounds lighter than you?!

That's exactly what this program strives to do.

Mathematically, cubed is the result of multiplying that same number by itself three times. 50 x 3 is 150, 50 cubed is 125,000.

Cubed is exponential

It’s synergy.

For the few bastards tough enough to survive this program, your results will also be exponential.

We will build the strength and power to sprint up a hill or climb over an obstruction with 120 pounds of external load, and we'll have the ability to repeat that.

Tactical strength is the objective, but we will build it without an inflated, artificial strength base.

Check out this YouTube video on Operation Tactical Hypertrophy with Tom Haviland, who helped design this program and was the initial guinea pig.

He is the most potent combination of speed, strength, muscularity, movement capacity and conditioning to ever walk planet Earth.

Many people have said they want to train like Tom; the way is now here, let’s see who has the cojones.

ONLY for those who are ALL IN
This 9-week program is purely about excellence and readiness. You'll be expected to train twice a day 3-4 times per week. You're either all-in or you're out and it takes a crazy bastard to begin the trek!

Meaningful Movements
We'll focus almost exclusively on ground-based functional movements like the Back Squat and Bench Press, adding in pulls, carries, sled drags, and rucks. Not a single movement, set, or even rep was wasted when we put this training plan together.

Ready at a Moment's Notice
We understand how training can impact performance and how performance (for some) can mean life or death in certain situations. This training plan was put together to ensure that you're ready at a moment's notice, for whatever comes your way in work and in life.

FAQs
What is RPE?
RPE is the acronym for rate of perceived exertion and is a way to self-regulate intensity. The following is the RPE scale used for the program. REMEMBER that RPEs are not emotional or a challenge, they are a pragmatic way to modulate intensity to the day’s strength levels. RPE is a measuring tool.
More on RPE...
4 Light weight for active recovery or mobility 5 Warm-up weight 6 Too light to have a significant training effect 7 Could have performed an additional three to five reps at the end of the set
And a little more on RPE...
8 Could have performed two to three additional reps at the end of a set 9 Could have performed one additional rep at the of a set, maybe two 10 At a max, no additional reps could be performed at the end of the set
Exclusivity Explained
As someone who successfully trains the greatest tactical athletes in the trenches, this is complete hogwash! I have taken the best of each type of periodization and honed a way to increase your strength and movement capacity concurrently.
Is this program only for advanced lifters?
This program is only for advanced lifters. Tactical Hypertrophy/50 Cubed is not an inclusive program, it is very exclusive! A majority who attempt will fail. If you are in doubt about your ability to recover, do twice a day workouts and be committed to this program, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS PROGRAM.
WARNING!
There are plenty of other programs which require less time, pain and mental anguish. Tactical Hypertrophy/50 Cubed training is only for the elite and the fully committed. You have been warned! DO NOT MOVE FORWARD IF YOU ARE UNSURE.
How do I know if I'm an Advanced Lifter?
You have 2+ years of consistent intelligent training. You've continuously progressed in strength levels, exercise technique, work capacity, muscle hypertrophy + other desired outcomes + are closing in on genetic potential. You've know your strengths + weaknesses + can make adjustments on your own.
